Introducing Simple Stars

Hello there! I’ve returned to my craft studio and am ready to share some projects with you that I’ve been working on for Papertrey Ink’s April release. For those who may not have visited my blog in a while, I was blessed with a new baby at the end of February, so I took a few weeks off to adjust. As a brief update, everything is going well. Thanks so much for all the well wishes you all posted. More pictures will be posted in this month’s Monthly Moments post coming soon!

Now, onto today’s group post. We are showcasing Simple Stars stamp set which coordinates with Cover Plate: Stars. I love a timeless shape, like stars, and all that you can do with it. From creating masculine to feminine, stars are a definite must-have for any crafters stash of supplies.

For my first card, I designed a masculine birthday card using the fun color combination from the photo below. Since having a baby, I’ve discovered The Land of Nod and just love their use of bright colors and fun patterns.

For my second card, my design is softer and feminine. As you can probably tell, I’m absolutely up to my neck in baby-themed products, so I’m sure you’re not surprised I was inspired by a nursery image. I loved the soft tones and the star pattern on the wall.

BEAUTIFUL cards, Ashley! It is nice to see you back though we understand your absence. Enjoy every moment of that sweet baby, it goes REALLY fast!
Thanks for sharing

So happy to hear that all is going well for you and your family. It is a wonderful time, even if you are too tired to enjoy each moment. I don’t want to ignore your second card since it is quite lovely, but the first card is amazing. Love the mix of colors and the clean design.

BevApril 12, 2014 - 2:31 pm

Sweet, sweet cards, Ashley. I love the simplicity of the first one and the soft, feminine look of the second. You do such lovely work. Was hoping you would share a pic of your precious little bundle.

Kathie BApril 12, 2014 - 2:34 pm

Monthly Moments: February

Hey everyone! I’m back to share another layout using Papertrey Ink’s Monthly Moments for February. I decided to use a small pocket-style format to document our exciting adventures from the last week. We welcomed our first baby, Lauren Alexa last Thursday and are beyond thrilled about her. She takes up lots of our time, but we love it. The awesome thing is, I was still able to put together this layout in a very short amount of time. It’s not heavily embellished, but it documents our activities and that’s the exact purpose of this awesome kit! If I can do it with a one week old infant, then there’s time to do it!

Ashley-Cannon-Newell_Papertrey-Ink-Feb-2014_01

Days of the Week stamp set was used here for this sentiment.

Ashley-Cannon-Newell_Papertrey-Ink-Feb-2014_02

Here, I used Slide Frame stamp set for the sentiment and embellished it with a resin flower.

Ashley-Cannon-Newell_Papertrey-Ink-Feb-2014_03

Here’s a photo of the 2-page spread using the 6×8 binder and pocket pages.

Ashley-Cannon-Newell_Papertrey-Ink-Feb-2014_04

I used the journaling cards to add my own personal notes.

Ashley-Cannon-Newell_Papertrey-Ink-Feb-2014_05

The journaling cards can also be used alone or embellished. If you are scrapping with limited time, like me, just let the journaling cards shine. That’s what’s so wonderful about this kit!

Ashley-Cannon-Newell_Papertrey-Ink-Feb-2014_06

I also used the February monthly die to embellish the photo.

And here’s a photo of our Lauren Alexa that I thought I’d share with you all.

Oh Ashley! Lauren is absolutely beautiful. I see both of you in her face, cool how that works out, isn’t it!? LOL Her complexion is just perfect. I always marvel at how pretty baby skin is and they smell so good. I don’t remember breathing my 2 babies in, surely I did and was just working and juggling life and don’t remember it. But I have certainly enjoyed getting to breathe in my sweet grand baby, perfectly content to just hold her. Congratulations! I hope all is well and you are feeling good.

BevMarch 1, 2014 - 3:23 pm

Oh Ashley, she is the most beautiful little girl – so dainty. She is just like your crafting – perfect!

Your new little one is absolutely beautiful. She looks perfect, not a mark on her. I had six kids and everyone of mine looked like they had been through a war. Okay, I exaggerate a little, but a couple of them looked like they had a rough time of it for a few days after they were born. Thanks for sharing. I hope both you and you new little one are doing fine.
